The definitive one-stop-shopping reference guide for new parents--with the inside scoop on the safety and value of all the products fundamental to the care of an infant
From birth to two, babies require lots of attention--and lots of special equipment. Determined to give their baby the best, parents wonder: Which car seat is safest? Which high chair is sturdiest? Which monitor will go the distance? Which diapers will be most gentle--to my baby's bottom and to the environment? This welcome, one-of-a-kind resource has the vital facts and insights to ease parents' concerns and help them make smart buying decisions.
Comprehensive and thorough, THE BEST OF EVERYTHING FOR YOUR BABY spotlights all the products essential for the nursery, and baby's feeding, bath time, entertainment, and travel. Les Krantz provides a detailed description of each product in the key categories and rates every single item on safety, quality, and value for the money--based on the latest studies by accredited organizations. Here parents will find the absolute best cribs, playpens, walkers, and safety locks; ointments, bibs, and medicine spoons; toys, music, videos, and computer games; strollers, diapers bags, and backpacks. They'll also get helpful tips on making baby food from scratch; strategies for organizing their growing home; and suggestions for soothing baby and restoring parental tranquillity.
Comprehensive and reliable, this unique resource will be the first place parents turn to ensure the best when it comes to their baby's care, safety, and comfort.

Les Krantz has written and produced more than a dozen reference books, including The Definitive Guide to the Best and Worst of Everything (Prentice Hall Press). A journalist, editor, and publisher with a fascination for statistical facts, he has been profiled in national magazines and interviewed on major television and radio programs across the country. He lives in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.
Sharon Ludman-Exley, has worked with Les Krantz on several books, including The Definitive Guide to the Best and Worst of Everything, and The Jobs Rated Almanac.From Library Journal:
The latest in the recent proliferation of books on what parents "ought" to buy for their baby, this A-to-Z compendium leaves nothing uncovered, from the simplest layette decisions to locating missing toy-part replacements. A virtual primer of where to buy what that includes manufacturer's 800 numbers and current prices (which will quickly become dated), this may be useful for first-time parents. Authors Krantz (The Definitive Guide to the Best and Worst of Everything) and Ludman-Exley (The Jobs Rated Almanac) provide a thorough table of contents. Generally, however, there is nothing in this work that Parents magazine or Consumer Reports magazine (and its associated Guide to Baby Products, 1999. 6th ed.) haven't already covered. Readers will be able to find the corporation numbers easily via web sites and standard business directories. Because it essentially replicates what is available in other sources, this is not an essential library purchase. Buy only as demand warrants.ALisa Powell Williams, Moline Southeast Lib., IL
